Just This Close


If you’re like me you have your favorite sites for obtaining prophecy updates each week. Pastor JD Faraq out of Calvary Chapel in Kaneohe, Hawaii is one of my favorites. He is so sincere and such a delight to watch. You can find him on YouTube for his weekly prophecy updates. If you have not listened to him before I encourage you to do so. You will not be disappointed.

I also like Paul Grevas  (from North Dakota, I believe) who writes a post each week on Facebook. I love his style, his optimism and his sense of humor. I’m not sure how you would find him if you’re not on Facebook but I thought I would post his latest here so that you (my readers) could enjoy his latest. And if you’re on FB and like him send him a friend request so that you can begin to get his updates as well.

The format on the link is kind of weird. It doesn’t present here quite like it does on FB but I hope you will enjoy it anyway.  It’s what he says that counts not the format anyway, right?  Friends, what can I say …… when you lay it all out there ….  we are surely there….. this old world couldn’t get much more crazy than it is right now. Actually, it probably could and will. Never the less, we are just that close! So enjoy Paul’s take on things and like I said if you like him and you’re on FB get on his friends list. You’ll be glad you did!

So without further adieu – here is the link.

And as always,

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6

Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus! Cindy

Three Words

imagesWUQO1BLW.jpg  Correspondence from the USS Wisconsin on the date of its launching December 7, 1943

The USS Wisconsin BB-64 is an Iowa-class Battleship built at the Philadelphia Navy Yard in Pennsylvania. It was commissioned in April 1944 and was launched on December 7, 1943 by Mrs. Walter Goodland, wife of the Governor of Wisconsin.

If you follow my blog, you will know that I have written extensively over the past few years regarding a dream I had in 2008. In the dream, I received a telephone call from a Wisconsin number which greeted me with one strange and sobering word  -. doomsday. Not sure what that meant, I was then  instructed to look out my window where I was able to see an atomic type mushroom cloud forming over the southern part of the island of Oahu in Hawaii.  I was living on Oahu at the time so the dream was both startling and disturbing to say the least. Since that time I have written not only about my interpretation and understanding of that dream but also about two false alarms which happened recently regarding emergencies on the Island one of which involved a report of incoming missiles. If you would like to read these posts the links are here, here and here.

I’ve thought about it (the dream)  a great deal over the years and have wondered at times if perhaps I was making more out of it than I should. Then in the early morning hours of October 15 (of this year) I had another very vivid dream which seemed to back up the first. So to start I will first relay the dream, then my interpretation and its possible connection to the previous dream.

THE DREAM – October 15, 2019

In this particular dream I was in a house that had the living quarters on the second story. I was busy putting away dishes in the kitchen and the television was going in the background. I remember thinking that it was nice having the television on as it provided some company in an otherwise silent house (which is strange because I am someone who never likes the television going unless I have something specific that I want to watch). So that was odd.

For some reason or other I decided to look out the windows which were shuttered. When I pulled the shutters back the first thing I saw was three people on ladders attempting to enter the house or perhaps look into the house. I also noticed that it had gotten eerily dark outside …. kind of gray and grainy – and the wind was blowing at hurricane force. Behind the people on the ladders in the far background I could see trees doubled over from the force of the wind. I don’t recall what type of trees they were – not pine trees, something more limber that could more easily bend. I don’t recall them being palm trees but they could have been. I was outraged by the people at the windows and went outside where I proceeded to knock them off their ladders. When they fell, they fell as straw men. Kind of like knocking a scarecrow over – although when they were standing at the windows they certainly were real flesh and blood. Why the wind didn’t blow them over I couldn’t say but that’s the nature of dreams as you know …. remember dreams are all about symbolism.

As I looked at the “strawmen” which had fallen to the ground I noticed a newspaper laying near them with the word Wisconsin prominently displayed on one corner.  I bent over to pick it up and as I did the corner of the paper on which the word Wisconsin was written tore off in my hand. As it tore off a page beneath it was revealed which looked to be some kind of ad on which 0 percent financing on something or other was visible but I only got a brief look.

I then asked someone (who, I don’t know – it was not clear who I was speaking to)  – but I said-

What does this mean?”

And the voice replied with these puzzling words –  “three years ago you were given three words …..

… “three words” I asked – “what three words????  What three words!!!!

I was dumbfounded at this and desperate to know what the words were but it was not to be as the dream ended there and I woke up.  It was 1:14 in the morning.  I feel quite certain now that the three words were for me to figure out. The dream only ended because it was not intended for me to be given the answer. I had to search it out for myself.

The Interpretation:

First of all I want to thank my daughter who I often refer to as Seven Stars for her help in putting pieces together of puzzles that frankly I just find baffling.  The Lord, of course is the one who lends understanding by the power of the Holy Spirit and to Him I give all the glory. And pray that somehow this post will be useful in bringing him honor in these last days.

1- Working in the kitchen in the house with the television going suggests to me that life is going along pretty much as normal. What is about to happen is not expected.

2Looking out the window – This was a common theme in both dreams. In the first dream instruction was given to look out the window where a nuclear type mushroom cloud was visible rising over the southern part of the island where I was living.  In the second dream looking out the window revealed two things. Someone attempting to enter the house and the presence of a horrific wind blowing.

Looking out a window would then indicate being shown something. I think that’s pretty obvious.

3Wisconsin –  In both dreams the word Wisconsin was prominent. Central, I would say to both dreams.  In the first dream it was the place from which the phone call originatedThe place from which I received the news – in other words the place from which I received the instruction to look out the window.  In the second dream it was the news …. as it was largely displayed in the headline area on the newspaper which would indicate to me that the word Wisconsin will be intricately tied to a future event either by name or place.

4Wisconsin vs Hawaii – The location of the mushroom cloud in the first dream was in the Diamond Head area of Oahu which would include Pearl Harbor.  And while the location of the second dream was not given I feel the word “Wisconsin” is connected to Hawaii because it was prominent in the first dream. Therefore the second dream in my opinion is clearly related to the first. Although it is entirely possible that Wisconsin itself may be the sight of a Pearl Harbor type event so I am not ruling that out at this time either.

It’s possible that Wisconsin is tied to Pearl Harbor by virtue of having a name similar to that of the ships that were sank – if you will remember they were named for states. The USS Arizona and the USS Utah.  And although the USS Wisconsin had not yet been built the fact that it was launched on the anniversary of that catastrophic event two years later may be significant. And could indicate a second Pearl Harbor type event sometime in the future centered around the word Wisconsin. Either in Hawaii or in Wisconsin itself.

5–  Strawmen -The second dream seems to contain more information than the first. The people trying to come in to the house were not using the door. Jesus said in John 10:1:

” Truly, Truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door in to the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber”. 

And when these “robbers” fell to the ground they became as straw. Which makes sense because our “works” if not founded in Christ will be burned up as straw. They just cannot stand.

Also, it could be said that they were attempting a surprise attack. Until looking out the window I did not know they were there.

6–  Headlines -Wisconsin was in the headline area of the paper but at the corner. I bent over to pick it up but when I did the corner where the word was written tore off in my hand. In the Bible when something was torn away it was usually the result of something very dramatic or as a result of great anguish.  I’m thinking of when the veil of the temple was torn in two or when people would tear their clothing as an act of anguish and mourning. Apparently the “news” associated with Wisconsin will cause great anguish as something or someplace is completely “torn away”.

7The ad – Underneath where the paper had torn an ad was visible which I think showed a 0 and a percent mark. I am not absolutely certain though. The zero could indicate time as in “time is up” or perhaps, zero survivors of what is coming. The result I believe of the tearing away.

8The three words. This has been hard to identify and I have racked my brain and have only come up with one word so far that may pertain.

Three years ago in the fall of 2016 I put out a fleece before the Lord. I had some extended family visiting in New York at the time and I could not shake the feeling that something bad was going to happen while they were there. I agonized over notifying them to be extra careful if nothing else but decided first to put out a fleece. I was going for a walk that afternoon around my neighborhood. It was fall and the colors and the temperature were just beautiful for an afternoon walk. I live in a small town in New Mexico so I wanted to put out a fleece that I thought would be near impossible unless divinely given. So I ask God to show me the word Manhattan somewhere in my neighborhood during my walk. The chances of finding this word in a city where emblems of the American Southwest are prevalent was just about zero in my estimation. Which was fine as I intended to choose something that I would not easily come across. But lo and behold, as I came to the end of one of the streets I was walking down there was a scarlet red pickup truck backed in to the driveway of a house and on the front license plate was the word Manhattan. I couldn’t believe it. I think my heart stopped in my chest as I stared in disbelief. I had really not expected a result. It seemed like such a long shot.  So I did alert my family and praise God nothing happened and they had a wonderful visit in New York. But still the question remains as to why the fleece was answered but seemed to have no connection to the visit of my family or New York at that time.

My daughter feels certain the word Manhattan was given for a later time.  Its interesting to note that the code name for the Atomic Bomb as it was being developed in Alamogordo, New Mexico was the Manhattan project. So one of the words given to me three years ago seems to be linked to a atomic or nuclear event.

In Summary:

Based on the two dreams I have had (and the two false alarms the island of Oahu has experienced since January 2018) I feel a second Pearl Harbor (or Pearl Harbor like event) may occur sometime in the future.  This brings me great distress as I lived on Oahu for 14 years and love it very much. I also have many friends still living there who are very dear to me. Nevertheless, this is what the dream(s) seems to indicate. It will be another surprise attack but because of the previous false warnings people will not take it seriously.

The word Wisconsin is a native American word which means “lies red”- a reference to the geology of the state which is known for red rocks along the Wisconsin River ….. a possible indication I believe of the bloody devastation that will take place as a result of this event. It is also possible that Hawaii is not the location but Wisconsin itself – as the heartland (of which I would consider Wisconsin to be part of) could be linked to the name of the woman who launched the ship – Mrs. Walter Goodland. The link then to Hawaii just an indication that another Pearl Harbor type event is somewhere in the future for either Hawaii or Wisconsin itself as I just said.

It’s been difficult writing this and I apologize if it is not clear. I cannot tell you with any certainty that dreams like this mean anything. But I do know that God often used dreams in the Bible for various things including the warning of people. Therefore, I’m praying that with God’s help I will be able to uncover the other two words which on doing so may unlock additional information regarding these dreams. Should that be the case I will certainly update this post or possibly add a part 2.

From my morning reading today:

“Though you soar like the eagle and make your nest among the stars from there I will bring you down. If thieves come to you, if robbers in the night – Oh, what a disaster awaits you – would they not steal only as much as they wanted? ….. those who eat your bread will set a trap for you but you will not detect it … the day of the Lord is near for all nations. As you have done, it will be done to you and your deeds will return upon your own head.” Obadiah 1:4,5,7&15

Until then, as always –

A Tale of Two Benjamins


Benjamin Netanyahu and Benjamin (Benny) Gantz

If you have been following the strange tale of Israeli elections this year you know that what is happening is anything but ordinary; in fact, it is unprecedented. In the 70 year history of the nation this has never happened and the way things are looking it’s anyone’s guess how this may go. With a second election behind them and the looming possibility of a third it is fair to say that no one is happy as the two men cannot come to an agreement and neither can achieve the numbers they need to form a government.

I find it interesting that at the heart of this debacle is two men both named Benjamin. A name that is replete with scriptural implication and brings to mind of course the most famous Benjamin of the Bible, the youngest son of Jacob born to his second wife Rachel. As you will remember, Rachel died giving birth to Benjamin who was her second son and the last of the sons born to Jacob. With his older brother Joseph presumed dead by his father (but in reality sold in to slavery in Egypt by his brothers) Jacob doted on his youngest son the only remaining son of the wife he loved.

Indulge me in some speculation, if you will. I’m not a theologian but I think there might be some parallels by which we can draw a picture. And if any part of it is right we may be able to get a glimpse as to where things are headed and just how close we are to Jesus (of whom Joseph is a type) revealing himself to his brothers.

The first place I would like to start is with the premise that Benjamin is a type of Israel in the latter days. We know that Joseph is typically viewed to be a type of Christ. And just as Joseph forgave his brothers who had sold him in to slavery so will Christ forgive his brethren who rejected him. For it says in Zechariah chapter 12: 10 –

“And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves  for a first born son.”

It occurred to me as I thought about the strangeness of this election that Benjamin whose name means “Son of my right hand” or “Son of my old age” could be referring to Israel in the latter days – son of my old age. And when you think that it was through the death of Rachel that Benjamin was born it bolsters further the idea that one had to give way before the other could come. The death of Rachel was no accident and is surely a type in and of itself. Consider this:

Rachel died on Chesvan 11. Chesvan 11 is also the day Methuselah died. To me this indicates something of a transitional nature. Methuselah was the grandfather of Noah, the oldest man who ever lived who died just prior to the flood. Because Rachel died on that same day (Chesvan 11) – the same day Benjamin was born – I am led to believe that there is something beyond the original story itself.  And because there is no such thing as coincidence where the Bible is concerned, I think it bears further looking in to.

Now there was one person between Methuselah and Noah and that was Noah’s father  Lamech. So I see Lamech as a type of interim or interval between the death of Methuselah and the onset of the flood. It is somewhat unclear what the name Lamech means but it is generally translated as “made low” and yet it is also sometimes translated as “mighty”. Could it be possible that Lamech is a type and shadow of the interval that Israel would experience while dispersed among the nations – in other words when they were “made low”.  Yet since their rebirth in 1948 the nation has become one of the mightiest in the world in both armies and economy.

Looking at the current political situation it might be worthwhile to see what we can find. If you remember, it was Benjamin who was accused of stealing a silver cup from Joseph. And while Joseph had planted it there in order to test his brothers before revealing himself to them, I can’t help but think that there may be a testing of sorts going on between these two Benjamins. A testing that will somehow conclude with Jesus making himself known to his brothers. Not necessarily today or tomorrow but rather what I would call a part of the process that will bring about that conclusion.

We know that the details of the Deal of the Century – the so-called “Peace Plan” was to be revealed following the election. But due to the current political situation that has been put on hold. When can we expect it? I really don’t know but obviously the time is not right as of now. But with Bible prophecy moving at what I would call warp speed that could change at any time.

It is interesting that these two Benjamins alike in name but differing in their view of the future for Israel have reached a stalemate. Benny Gantz has the support of the Arab Israeli population and while he has not yet publicly come out in favor of the two-state solution, he certainly may. And Netanyahu who I believe is against it is embroiled in his own messy affairs with the possibility of being indicted on charges of bribery. As I understand it, he was hoping to deflect these charges by winning the election but of course that has not happened. And while I have no idea if he is guilty or not it still may be the equivalent of the silver cup in his pack. Silver in the Bible representing not only money but mourning, repentance and destruction. And now this morning, Benny Gantz in trouble as well facing accusations of war crimes by a Dutch court.  So both Benjamins are facing incredible personal struggles in addition to the political debacle they find themselves in.

Shifting gears just a little – how about the prediction by now deceased Rabbi Kaduri who left the dubious note to be read one year after his death regarding the identity of the Messiah whom he identified as Yeshua. I say dubious because the note also said (if I remember right) that the Messiah was presently hidden and living in obscurity in Israel  – now it’s entirely possible that those words were added by those who disliked what he had written (naming Yeshua as Messiah) in an effort to cast doubt on the authenticity of his note. I’m really not sure but I bring this up because Rabbi Kaduri also reportedly predicted a time when there would be no government after an election … an impasse as he called it that would result in what he referred to as a “heavenly battle” – a battle that would open the door (according to his prediction) to the coming of Messiah. Now again, I cannot vouch for these things and cannot tell you with any certainty whether he is talking about Yeshua or who we would refer to as the Anti-Messiah or Anti-Christ. What I do find fascinating is the similarity once again to a situation in the Bible.

I was discussing this latest prediction with my daughter who I often refer to as Seven Stars and found her take on the situation to be quite fascinating. She likened the situation (the potential dividing of the land) to the incident where two women both claimed a baby to be theirs. With incredible wisdom King Solomon heard their case and determined that the child should be split in two. Of course, the real mother spoke up and was willing to give the other woman the child rather than seeing it divided … while the other woman, the impostor was perfectly fine with splitting the child.

Now if we look at this child as Israel, we see two men both named Benjamin with two different views regarding the future of the state. One is most likely in favor of dividing it while the other is not. But this is a little different than the situation with King Solomon. In this case, both parties are men, not women.  Now as we all know men cannot give birth to anyone or anything and certainly did not give birth to the state of Israel (although men were involved in making it happen). But it was the Lord who brought her forth in birth.  And it will be the Lord who will battle for her existence. It will not be won by men.

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels. And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven….And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child”. Revelation 12: 7, 8 & 13.

The enemies of God boast of the destruction of Israel but there is nothing they can do to bring about her demise. The real battle is being fought in the heavenly realms and as mentioned before it will be God who fights the battle and God who will win on her behalf. And while the two Benjamins cannot agree as to the future of Israel this much is certain. Things are moving along right on schedule and her future could not be more bright. Therefore, we watch and wait.

The Face Of Evil


Looking for the face of evil …. we found it …. not in places dark and sinister as we might have thought… but rather in the reflection of our own smiling faces.

I read a post this morning by Conservative author, Christian and Attorney Michael Snyder titled “Has America Become One Of The Most Evil Nations On The Entire Planet?” The information he provides is absolutely shocking; sickening really. Causing me to wonder how much lower we can go before the Lord unleashes much deserved judgment upon us.

If you have not already read this article I encourage you to do so now. It takes what we thought we knew about abortion (and the process involved) to a whole new level. May God help us and forgive us. One thing we cannot say is that we never knew.

America’s Funeral Dirge

untitled.png  Rock and Roll Concert

“The Devil led him (Jesus) up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to him, ‘I will give you all their authority and splendor, for it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. So if you worship me it will all be yours.’ Jesus answered, ‘It is written:  Worship the Lord your God and serve him only'” Luke 4:5-8

I have just been undone by the latest post by Serayah515 on American Pie that it’s just about all I can think about. It’s not his first work on the subject (I read the original years ago when he first published it) but reading it again (with its updates) it’s like reading it for the first time all over again. Moving, powerful and unsettling in thought and content. If you have not read it yet it is an absolute must. I warn you though it’s a little lengthy (as it needs to be) but wade through it. In small pieces if you must – chewing slowly as you go as it doesn’t go down easily.

As one who graduated from High School in the early 1970’s I loved my rock music (at that time) as much as the next guy or girl. Over the years that has pretty well faded for me and with my current level of hearing loss, well just about all music is lost to me anyway. But those tunes …. there is just something about them that sticks in the mind. I can sing, “hear” and feel those songs as clearly today as I could back then. Even though I seldom think about that music these days just the mention of a name (Nights in White Satin, for instance) will take me right back there and I am lost in the music once again. No pun intended.

I’d like to think there was something of value to the “soundtrack” of my youth but I’d be hard pressed to find that now. Years ago, after learning about backward masking I smashed all of the LP’s I owned wanting nothing more to do with the vile images contained within and without. But, ahhhh …. they are not so easily erased from the mind. Designed I believe with an inherent ability to stay with us. Kind of like a dormant virus – never gone … just waiting for the right conditions to cause pain and misery to its host.

Before I provide the link to this most important work by Serayah515 titled “The American Pie Prophecy: an End Times Lament for Babylon America” I just want to say one more thing.

The name – American Pie. What is a pie if not a foundation? A pie crust can hold fruit fillings, meat fillings, cheese, vegetables, you name it. It really is a foundation on which other things rest. I think therefore that it is a very appropriate and telling name for what has been dubbed by some as “America’s Funeral Dirge”.

The Bible says in Psalm 11:3

“If the foundations are destroyed what can the righteous do?”

Yes, what can the righteous do? Well for one thing we can recognize it for what it is and repent for the part it has played in our lives. All of the ills we currently face (if you think about it) can be traced back to the 1960’s and the explosion of rock and roll (first across America ) and then across the globe.

” And as the flames climbed high in to the night ….  To light the sacrificial light …. I saw Satan laughing with delight … the day the music died”

With no further ado – here is the link.

Without Remedy

untitled.png  Installing the beam signed by Barack Obama One World Trade Tower Thursday August 2, 2012

“But they continually mocked the messengers of God, despised his words and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, until there was no remedy.” 2 Chronicles 36:16

In the photo above workers can be seen installing the beam signed by then President Barak Obama, his wife Michelle and other New York dignitaries including Governor Andrew Cuomo, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The words signed in red ink in the Presidents own hand read as noted below:


Eight words and three affirmations of we.  We remember. We rebuild. We come back stronger. We assume that we know who he is speaking of  when he says “we” – but do we really?  Remember …. rebuildcome backRemember, rebuild …. come back!

Whatever was intended by those words (for better or worse) have now been embedded in the 104th floor of the One World Trade Tower where they will stay until the Lord deems otherwise. An obvious throw back to the Tower of Babel in Genesis chapter 11 – its days (like the tower of old) may very well be numbered.

Speaking of the number 104  – it’s interesting to note that the 104th Psalm speaks of God as builder.  The beam He has placed.  Laying out in majestic prose this beautiful Psalm affirms God as both creator and master over all –  including climate – which does his will by just the breath of his word.

“He wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind. He makes winds his messengers, flames of fire his servants. He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.  Psalm 104: 2-5

Yet on June 25, 2013 President Obama took the opportunity to mock those who disagreed with him on climate change as the dumbest of the dumb …. flat earthers he called themA sly dig at anyone who does not have the kind of forward thinking that he does (at least in his opinion). You know, people who just will not move ahead with the times. People who insist on living their lives based on what he considers to be the failed patterns of the past.

“We don’t have time for a meeting of the flat earth society” he said. “Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it’s not going to protect you from the coming storm.”

Not one for missing an opportunity to exalt himself and denigrate anyone who may disagree with him. The President uses fear and intimidation in making his point.  And why would that be important? Well, climate change is the stick of choice on which all of their policies hang in order to bring about the change they want.  And an effective stick it is. What they don’t realize or perhaps more accurately choose not to recognize is that climate is not theirs to manipulate. It belongs to the God of Psalm 104 who uses it at his will. Not theirs.

On the eve of the anniversary of 9/11 these are some of the things I am thinking about.   How much our country has changed since that fateful day. How we came to elect a man whose arrogance and pride have done more damage than the planes ever did in bringing down the towers.

But this is a new era, you say …. Trump is in office. Barak Obama is a has been. Well, maybe, maybe not. One thing for sure. The bold words he penned on the beam embedded on the 104th floor of the One World Trade Tower remain to this day. And the scripture is clear –  for those who mock –  there is no remedy. And that is something we really must think about.

Against A Purple Sky Revisited

EDqu_0DXsAEuonq.jpeg.jpg  Sky over Florida evening of September 4, 2019

A few years ago I wrote a post titled Against a Purple Sky. It was based on a dream I had which seemed to indicate the serious spiritual condition we find ourselves in today. Both as a nation and as the Church. To tell you the truth I had pretty much forgotten about it until Vonna (one of my readers) brought it to my attention in the comments section today. Thank you Vonna!  Yes, the passing of Dorian off the coast of Florida yesterday created some of the most spectacular skies you could ever hope to see. And Vonna on seeing them remembered my post.

I’ve been wondering of course if the purple skies seen yesterday have any connection to the purple skies of my dream.  Purple skies are rare but not uncommon around hurricanes. And were seen last year with Hurricane Michael as well I am told. So, if there is any connection between Dorian and my dream of May 3, 2013 I really couldn’t say.  For those of you who would like to read the original post you can find it here.

Thank you for taking the time once again to visit Heaven Bound at CindybytheSea. I do appreciate it. and as always ….

Bye, bye … bye bye


If there was one song that characterized the early 1970’s it would be the enigmatic and unforgettable tune from Don McClean titled “Bye-Bye Miss American Pie. With hauntingly mysterious lyrics that ring almost prophetic in nature many have been left scratching their heads trying to figure out just what the strange and compelling lyrics mean. If you are unfamiliar with them (the lyrics) you can read them here.

I bring this up today as my friend at Seryah515 has made an interesting and possibly important discovery regarding the date the song was written in relation to the 18th anniversary of 9/11 this year. Without saying more I will leave it for you to read and ponder.  May God be with us in the coming days. It certainly seems as if things are about to change.

An Open Invitation


“And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin”. Jeremiah 32:35

In the last few weeks we have been witness to what would have once been unthinkable. Many states approving not only of abortion but abortion for any reason up until the moment of birth with no questions asked.  And if that weren’t enough the horrendous vote in our own US Senate recently to withhold care for any infant who managed to survive an abortion attempt …. the modern equivalent to “passing our sons and daughters through the fire” as they did in ancient times.

In the last few days I have asked myself repeatedly, “Why, is this happening?  Why, now? Why this direct and purposeful assault on the most helpless and innocent among us?  Where did this come from and why?” Abortion has always been atrocious but this …. this is something else. When did we become so heartless and cruel?

Then I remembered the Arch from the Temple of Baal that was set up in Washington DC  the latter part of 2018 and I thought, aha! So while looking for some information on the subject I came across an article from CBN news titled, “Arch from the Temple of Baal in DC: Coincidence or Pagan Invitation?”. And that caught my attention.

Quoting from Jonathan Cahn in the CBN article –

“Baal was a god of power, fertility and child sacrifice ….. the reconstructed arch (could possibly serve) as a gateway, and may have been placed as an open invitation to the entity or other entities associated with the arch”. 

Sound far fetched? I don’t think so. In fact, I believe that is exactly what happened.   To read article in full click here

Hence these chilling words from the book of Revelation.

“With a mighty voice he shouted: ‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a dwelling place for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.'” Revelation 18:2

Most people underestimate the spiritual realm. These entities are blood thirsty, power hungry and looking for a home. And we, unwittingly (or not)  put out the welcome mat.

The selling of baby parts is big business. Is that why there is a sudden push for full term but dead babies?  Ah, now it makes sense.

And lest we think that the horrendous practice of selling body parts is relegated to babies – think again. I recently found out to my horror that a couple I knew fairly well 30 years ago is being investigated along with their daughter and 60 others for body brokering at a funeral home in the small Colorado town in which they live.  Instead of cremating bodies brought to them for cremation services, the bodies were instead dismembered and the various parts shipped off to the highest bidder both here and abroad. Turning a nice profit even at discounted prices to those involved.  The ashes returned to grieving families on investigation “cement powder” or something else only identified as non-human. If you can imagine that. A number of cats missing in the area, I presume. Keep in mind this is a very small community. If it can happen there – it can happen anywhere – and I imagine it most likely is. Why stop at babies when you can get mature adults? The killing of babies is just the beginning. Better yet, to keep it all nice and legal ….. death panels to rid society of those deemed unfit or useless. The dollars keep rolling in. To read this story in full, click here

We are told in the book of Ephesians that we” wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12)  And so we are.

Therefore we must be diligent and aware.

As it says in 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary , they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive very thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

Therefore we must make every effort to put on the whole armor of God. The instruction from Ephesians 6:10-18 never more applicable than today.

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” Amen and Amen.

This weekend I will be joining a group in protest of the liberal policies of the state in which I live (New Mexico). Number one on the list for me is their atrocious policy of abortion up and until the moment of birth. A practice that is not new here. Sadly women travel here from all over the world for services they cannot get elsewhere. The killing of their full term baby, if you want to call that a service.  I believe in being proactive (and I am) but I also understand that the real battle will be won by utilizing the tools the Lord has given us …. without out them we may win a battle but we can never win the war. Pray (with me) if you will that God may continue to press on my heart all of these things in ways I have never fully grasped before. And as always,

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6

New Mexico Pride …. and Shame


Here We Come

My heart swelled with pride at the sight of these men (and one woman, I think) riding horseback into Washington DC to show their support for President Trump. The group call themselves Cowboys for Trump and are led by New Mexico County Commissioner (Otero County) Couy Griffin who said the group was formed as a visible way to show support for the President in his effort to secure the border (part of which New Mexico shares with Mexico) and in support of Second Amendment rights and the right to life of the unborn. You will notice in the photo above the yellow New Mexico flag carried proudly next to the American. One state out of 50 but representative of the hearts and minds of millions of Americans, I believe, who rode vicariously with this group … all the way to Washington ….. with one unanimous message ….. here we come!

Conversely, New Mexico Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich voted against the “born alive” bill today which would have provided medical care to any infant who was lucky enough to survive abortion. A bill which did not pass thanks to democrats who made certain that it did not.

I could be wrong but with the recent push towards infanticide I think the majority of Americans are finally fed up. This is one line that should never have been crossed. There are a lot of prickly issues that not every American can agree upon but leaving babies to die …. that is something else. Only the most evil, vile of humans could agree to something like that. And those people right now ….. represent us. We are appalled; we are fed up; and we are ready to say “no more!”

It may be too late to avert judgment and God would certainly be within his right. But while there remains even the smallest window of time it would behoove us to seize the opportunity to make our voices heard in ways that we have not since the founding of this country. I think the ride to Washington was just the tip of the ice berg. And I thank these cowboys for reminding us of the simple place from which we come. America, of which we are the heart. Our parents, grandparents, great grandparents and great, great grandparents fought and worked to make this country the greatest free place on earth. Their toil, their blood must not have been in vain. They did it for us. How can we do less for those who follow?
